Find a local plumber you can trust using our free online directory search.
WaterSafe approved plumbers are certified by our national accreditation body, with specific training in the UK’s Water Fittings Regulations and Byelaws.
Hiring a WaterSafe approved plumber ensures that all plumbing work meets high standards and protects the quality of drinking water in your home and business, in England, Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland.
When planning a plumbing project, you may wish to hire specialised contractors, rather than a fully qualified WaterSafe Plumber.
These Water Support Services contractors include:
These contractors are not approved WaterSafe plumbers, but they are recognised by the water company schemes APLUS, TAPS, WaterMark and WIAPS to carry out specific types of work in compliance with the Water Fittings Regulations and Byelaws.
Groundworkers can work on the supply pipe (the underground pipe) supplying your property, up to the internal stop valve.
Catering Installers can install commercial kitchen equipment.
Point of Use Installers can install cold water chillers connected directly to the mains.
For further information or help, you should contact the relevant water company scheme.
Find a local WaterSafe approved plumber to help with your emergency.
For leaks, burst pipes, or other plumbing emergencies, WaterSafe’s emergency search will give you the contact details of a plumber who can help right away.
If you have no water, very low pressure or concerns about the quality of your water, you should contact your local water company straight away.
WaterSafe has once again joined forces with Waterwise and UK water companies to help promote water efficiency during a week-long national campaign.
Water Saving Week runs from 20- 24 March 2017 and will see five themes across the week, all with daily challenges and water saving tips.
The interactive campaign aims to raise awareness about how easy it is for everyone to use water wisely - whether it’s at school, in the workplace, at home, in local communities, or the garden.
Supporting factsheets with lots of advice, water saving tips and daily challenges can be found here.
Julie Spinks, Director of WaterSafe, said: “WaterSafe approved plumbers have the expertise to help homes and businesses become more water efficient. Around one third of the water each person uses on a daily basis is wasted, so potentially there are significant savings to be made.”
